I share this point 100%. All companies serve customers. What every customer does before purchasing is comparing. Being competitive ''literally'' requires to know what competition is doing. Competitive and reverse analysis are necessary, any big company does it, this is one major task of any marketing department. To make a counter example, Nokia overlooked competition in 2009 and you see how it ended. I don't see how these sort of e-mails can seriously stand a trial about particular patent infringement.

I guess its the competitive strategy to know your opponents strengths and weakness. After all everything is fare in war and it seems to be a big war to be at number 1 position.

When I was interviewed at Intel in the 80's, one of the manager said they reversed the graphic design of fellow competitors but they could never master it.

Haha. This is interesting. So get an attorney to sit in the meeting to avoid discovery!

Really ? Why would it be privileged if there is an attorney sitting in?

Someone told me recently some companies are having an attorney staff every major meeting so it can be considered privileged communications and exempt from discovery. Anyone else heard of such practices?

It is my understanding that in the current case the LG Prada handset is not being considered as prior art at least in part because it was not sold or marketed in the U.S. prior to the launch of the iPhone. Any patent experts here can feel free to clarify the law.

Yup. Infact one IP expert advised me always talk important stuff over the phone and leave no records/emails for anyone to findout.

I once worked for a major US electronics manufacturer and they had a whole department dedicated to the reverse engineering of competitor's products. They went as far as using an E-beam prober to read out the contents of protected EEPROM. They didn't copy the code, just use it for understanding benchmark results. I'm sure they weren't alone. Regarding prior art overseas, I would be very surprised if they could patent a a foreign invention overlooking foreign prior art. If they could then there would be very little stopping a foreign country from discounting any US IP rights overseas.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
